Developing the Objectives
The Equality Act (2010) places a general duty on the University to prepare and publish equality objectives, at least every four years. We published our last set of objectives in 2012 and are due to publish our new objectives in April 2016.
Consultation on these objectives will take place between 29th February and 11th March 2016.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) explains that the objectives we set must be specific, measurable and explicit about:
• The policy, function or practice they relate to
• The people that are affected
• The outcome they seek to achieve
• Why they have been selected, and
• How success will be measured.
Below is a link to the proposed 2016 – 2020 objectives.
We welcome your comments and feedback. Please make sure you take a look and have your say by emailing me by 11th March 2016.
Patrick Johnson, Head of Equality and Diversity
